The Crazy Author Dance (In Honor of the Print Proof of THE FAERIE GUARDIAN)

Guess what, guess what?! The proof copy of THE FAERIE GUARDIAN finally arrived! Sooooooo exciting to hold my actual very own real life book in my hands! I think you can only really understand the insanity feeling once it's happened to you. It's like I'm looking at a book for the first time! There are actual pages with real words printed on them and the pages turn and my name is there and it's ALL SO AWESOME! See what I said about insanity? On top of which I felt the need to video this experience so that you can all see me dancing around like a complete fruitloop.

Feel free to laugh. I am here to entertain!

LOL! You are so cute!

Holding your own book in your hands is the most amazing feeling ever - when my first one arrived I was dancing around all over the house and didn't stop smiling all day!

Rachel Morgan said...

Haha, thanks ;-)
I've had to put it away on a shelf out of sight now, because it was sitting next to me on my desk and I kept looking at it and picking it up to flip through the pages! A complete distraction from my work!

hehe. That is cute. Can't wait to read it! I like physical copies so much more than e-books for some reason :)

That is such a cute video, Rachel! I'm so happy for you. That's how I felt when my proof copy came in the mail, too! A book, with words, with my name on it! Yippeee!
